Police in southern Turkey arrested a wanted Al-Qaeda terrorist, local officials announced Friday.
Taner Kusioglu was arrested by anti-terror police in an operation in the Hatay province on Thursday, the governor’s office said in a statement, adding that the operation had taken place in the district of Antakya.
Kusioglu was on the gray category of the Interior Ministry’s wanted terrorists list with up to a bounty of 500,000 Turkish liras ($68,000).
The wanted list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red as the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange and gray.
